Weekly rehearsals emphasize the development of musicianship and vocal technique while performing a wide variety of high quality musical literature. The children develop healthy vocal habits, confidence, self-discipline and a deeper understanding of music

Mathiessen Auditorium at LaSalle-Peru High School (entrance at the corner of 6th & Chartres Streets)

All members are required to attend registration and have their voices checked each fall for placement in the choir. The choir is open to children in grades 3-8 who demonstrate the necessary singing skills. Boys must have unchanged voices. January Registration is held for new members who wish to join mid-year as well as current members who are requested to re-audition by the choir directors. Rehearsals are held each Tuesday throughout the school year from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. at First Congressional Church in Peru. Most singers spend several years in this choir developing basic singing skills and musicianship.

Choir News and Events

Illinois Valley Youth Choir added an event.

Come out to the Peru Culver's and support the Illinois Valley Youth Choir. A portion of all proceeds (drive-thru and inside) will go to our group to keep the registration costs low so that every child has the opportunity to sing. The youth choir will be working during the event, bringing out food, clearing tables, and providing smiles 😊maybe even a sing-along 🎼 🎶❤!

Please share with family and friends!
